Transferring Content to your Braille Display, Tuesday at 7:30 PM

Have you ever downloaded a book from Bookshare or Reading Services, but struggled to extract the zip file? Have you ever had a BRF file emailed to you, but not been able to copy it to your braille display? Does your braille display only support text or BRF files, but you want to read Word or PDF files on it?

If you can answer “yes” to any of these questions, our Masterclass on Tuesday is for you!

Matthew Horspool will be in the presenter’s chair and he will take us step by step through extracting zip files, converting files from one format to another, and copying files from your computer to your braille display. Demonstrations using a screen reader will form an integral part of the presentation, and as ever there will be plenty of time for your questions at the end.

N.B. most of the demos will be carried out on Windows, but the concepts discussed should apply equally to other operating systems.
